Spinning Yarn

Just a quick post this evening as I spent the day skeining, washing, and mordanting yarn, as well as steeping the Madder root for dyeing tomorrow.
Here is a picture of the yarn I spun yesterday. I deliberately spun it thick and thin to get a nice novelty type yarn. The color is turquoise with spots of purple. The yarn is soft and very lofty. It spins quickly and was a lot of fun to spin. It would make a lovely knitted scarf. I may just dig up my old knitting needles and do that. Tomorrow I will be dyeing with the Madder roots. More about Madder tomorrow...-Renee
